SOURCE: Ignition failing to start -S280 MERCEDES BENZ 1999 MODEL

Crank shaft position sensor is bad. This is the most common failure. Its location is on the rear drivers side of engine, where the transmission bell housing mates to the engine, only one small bolt and a two prong electrical connector hold it on. Usually will not throw a trouble code. If you remove it you can test it with an ohm meter, will have an erratic reading or read open loop, can malfunction intermittently or permanently after parking vehicle and won't restart. Applying some heat source to it during ohm testing with a hot air heat gun will usually cause the sensor to read open loop if your not sure if its bad or not. This reply is probably way to late, but I just happened to come accross it while online. Harry (master certified MBZ diagnostic tech)

How replace a lock tumbler on a 1995 Mercedes benz c220


If the key does not turn at all in the ignition tumbler then your going to need to drill a hole in the side of the steering lock in order to manually release the steering lock and remove it complete with the ignition tumbler attached. If you get a new steering lock you can examine it to see exactly where to drill the hole and how to manually release it. If the key does turn at least to position 1 then all you need is the removal pins that slide into the small holes around the face of the tumbler. If there are no holes then once the key is in position 1 all you have to do is turn the tumbler housing to the left until is unscrews. Let me know if you need any further assistance on the removal if the key is stuck.

I want to remove the ignition switch out of my 199 mercedes SL300


if its jammed you may be out of luck. the process is to turn the key to position 2 and put a set of pins in the 2 holes in the tumbler and remove. The only other way i know is to have it drilled out. A stealership may have better options. Either way yoou need a new tumbler with new key.

Ignition switch


hi friend, to get your tumbler out, force your front keyhole(the stainless part) to position 2. insert 2mm bicycle spokes all the way through, this will disenade the lock of your ignition cap( the black cover) pull hard the cap and if you may use flat screw driver to help the cap come-off the ignition housing. your tumbler will come-off with your ignition cap.

The key in ignishin does not go from 0 to 1 and 2 position to unlock wheels and start engin in 300d mercedes 1982


The keyed ignition assembly has failed internally. This would be a great expense from the dealer, so check online for discount mercedes part suppliers. You could replace it yourself if you found a matching style but your door and trunk keys would be different.
